Does it mean a walk in the countryside? Maybe. But with those midgies and lack of toilet facilities? Maybe not.
Does it mean sex? Maybe. But with those performance issues and gender politics? Maybe not.
Does it mean humping the opposition at pub quiz? Of course it does. Get your shot of pleasure. Tonight:
6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: the music round includes an act named 5 Seconds of Summer. See vid below for the tune. It’s some weepy-weepy snowflake boyband shit.
8pm – The Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Apocalypse Now. It’s a film about th Vietnam War. It’s supposed to be genius but the only time I saw it I fell asleep. I’m not saying it’s a bad film, it’s just a bit long and I was a bit knackered.
Thanks to the inability of Hearts and Hibs to reach a conclusion to their cup-tie the other week, there is a replay tonight at Easter Road. The ensuing Leith-based chaos means that the Joker is skipping the quiz this week and closing early. Probably a smart move, but annoying nonetheless.
Anyway the Joker should have been £30 jackpot tonight and we’re assuming that tonight would count as a rollover so the jackpot will be £60 next Wednesday. See you then.
The Brass Monkey is on as usual as it is in a part of town generally unaffected by the nonsense that football sometimes becomes.
